A. Philippe Crown Trifari Jelly Belly Sterling Vermeil Spider Fur Clip-43 Patent For Sale
Fur Clip2" x 1 7/8". Sterling vermeil, with much of the gold plating worn off on the outer sections of the spider legs. Most rhinestones bright, with the exception of one of the three large ones that lie across the spider body. The one in the center, the largest, is fine. One of the two on the side is dark. (I don't know whether to call it right or left, but I think you can find it it the photo.) Neither the missing gold plate nor the dark stone affects the sparkle of the piece under artificial lighting.The lucite is unmarred. The reverse is marked with the patent number 135190 and with the Crown Trifari mark. In addition, there are some marks scratched into the edges around the back, next to the maker's stamped marks. These scratched marks turn up in old costume jewelry from time to time, and I take them to be a store's inventory records. If we could interpret them, we would know where this piece was originally sold. Since many curious people are working on such questions, the answer may one day emerge, so that the new owner should not lose sight of these early records.CareStore wrapped in acid-free tissue in a non-oak container. Keep dry, especially rhinestones. Never throw a vintage piece in a drawer or onto a table top. That's how scratches and chips appear. These lovely pieces from the 40s and 50s are American treasures, and there won't be any more of them.Packing and Shipping NoteWill be wrapped in acid-free tissue, boxed, and shipped in a padded envelope. Regrettably, shipping rates have gone up, particularly international ones. Please do not pay for the first item if there is a possibility of your winning a second within a week. Or, if you can't resist, please tell me not to send it. Thanks!
